    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology).

    Interview Details

    This was the strangest interview I ever had. The director gave an hour and a half monologue about his history and what he wants to do in the department. He literally only asked me one question: "Do you have a Master's?" There was no congratulations, no checking up on my references, no asking for transcripts. I only received a date and time I needed to show up. No contract until a week after I had already been working there.

    Interview Questions
    • There was only one question- "Do you have a Masters?" Not hard.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. When I was hired some years ago, I was given no documents about expectations or information. You just had to figure it out. And no contract until a week into teaching. Now, new hires are given a two-day seminar on teaching theory and handed a two-page list of expectations.

X (used as screener), tell me about what you did in your previous jobs, do you see yourself staying in Rochester, and that type of stuff, nothing hard.
